Shaw University Bulletin 



The Summer Session is intended to provide instruction for regular 
students of this and other colleges and universities and for those en- 
gaged during the winter in teaching. 


The location of Shaw University is especially convenient, situated 
practically in the heart of the Capital City. No car or cab fares will 
be necessary to visit the shopping district, State Department of Educa- 
tion, State Museum, State Library, Hall of History, and other places 
of educational interest. An exceedingly bracing and healthful climate 
makes this city an ideal place for residence and study. 


The faculty for the Summer Session will be composed primarily of 
the regular members of the Shaw University faculty, together with 
additional specialists in the field of education. 


A well-equipped and attractive library, consisting of approximately 
19,000 books is located in Tyler Hall. It is supervised by a competent 
librarian who aids the students in their reference work and guides 
them in their general reading. Magazines and daily and weekly news- 
papers provide means for the information of students on current 
events. It is the aim of the Administration to make the library a place 
of great usefulness in the education of the students in technical knowl- 
edge and general culture. 


Local conditions make it impossible for the University to offer ob- 
servation and directed teaching facilities. 


Persons desiring dormitory accommodations during the Summer 
School should indicate that fact to the Registrar, not later than June 
2 ; send key deposit of $2.00 with application prior to that date, making 
money-order payable to Shaw University. The University has adequate 
housing for those who desire to live on the campus. The women stu- 
dents are under the supervision of the Dean of Women who is assisted 
by dormitory hostesses, and the men students are under the supervision 
of the Dean of Men and assistants. 

Shaw University Bulletin 5 


Tennis, croquet, softball, and sightseeing tours are among the 
forms of recreation provided by the University. 

In addition, several social events are held for the students and 
faculty of the Summer School. 


The Bureau has secured each year a large number of teaching and 
administrative positions for students and former students. It exists 
for the double purpose of supplying the needs of school officials over 
the State and of helping students and former students to find teaching 
and administrative positions for which they are best suited. 


Assembly exercises are held in Greenleaf Memorial Hall on Mon- 
days, Wednesdays, and Fridays. All students are invited to attend these 
exercises. Special addresses are arranged and interesting recitals 


Teachers are requested to bring their certificates, credit slips from 
summer schools previously attended, diplomas, or other evidences of 
training. These will be needed for registration the first day. No student 
should expect to enter and receive credit after Monday, June 15. 


Written application should be made and forwarded in advance. A 
transcript signed by the president or principal of the school attended, 
containing a full record of the subjects pursued by the student with 
the time devoted to each, and his standing in the same, should be sent 
to the Registrar of the University before the student registers. Applica- 
tion blanks will be furnished on request and should be filled out and 
returned promptly. 

Courses are organized to serve the needs of the following persons : 

(a ) High School graduates 

( b ) College students 

(c) College graduates interested in renewing certificates 

(d.) Holders of any of the following certificates: 

1. Elementary — any class 

2. Primary "C," "B," "A" 

3. Grammar "C," "B," "A"

Shaw University Bulletin 11 


Because of the success of the workshop-seminar of other years, 
plans are being made to provide a workshop-seminar for teachers, 
principals, and supervisors. The workshop-seminar is designed to give 
its members an opportunity to clarify their thinking on problems of 
educational philosophy, and to give them assistance in defining educa- 
tional objectives. Each member will be given a chance to work on prob- 
lems which are encountered in his particular school situation. Those 
who bring similar problems will be encouraged to work in small, in- 
formal groups. In addition, they will have easy access to the services 
of a group of sympathetic and competent workshop specialists. 

Those who attend will be given credit for six semester hours in 
supervision and administration. These hours will fulfill the State's re- 
quirement for the principal's or supervisor's certificate, and, in addi- 
tion, serve to renew certificates. 

Registration for workshop will begin June 11. Special fee of $4.50 
in addition to regular charges. 

For further information, please feel free to communicate with the 
Director of Summer School. 



The Reverend M. N. DeLaney, General Director

TWO WEEKS : Beginning Monday, June 15 and ending Friday, June 
26, 1953 

Shaw University is pleased to offer this summer a two weeks' study 
course for ministers who desire to improve themselves in literary 
background and in Bible study. These are not courses for college credit 
but are designed for ministers who do not have the credits necessary 
for college admission. 

The classes will meet from Monday to Friday of each week so that 
ministers may return to their church fields if desired. The fees will 
be $10.00 a week including course fees, room and board for those who 
bring their sheets, pillow cases, and towels. The charges will be $12.00 
per week for those who do not bring their linen. Persons not living in 
the dormitories will pay $4.50 a week. A laboratory fee of $1.00 will 
be paid by each student for materials to be used in the handicrafts 
course. About $5.00 will be needed for books and other supplies. For 
further information, write to The Reverend M. N. DeLaney, Shaw 
University, Raleigh, North Carolina. 


TWO WEEKS : Beginning Monday, June 15, and ending Friday, June 
26, 1953 

This summer Shaw University continues a summer study program 
for Missionary Women as another phase of the program of the Mis- 
sionary Training Department. The work will be so organized that over 
a period of years women who have completed the total program will 
receive a certificate. These are not the courses which are to be taken 
by the students in the college working for the A. B. degree with a 
major in Religious Education, but are designed for women who are 
already active in the missionary program in their churches, or wish to 
prepare themselves for the improvement of such activities. 

Classes meet from Monday to Friday of each week so that the 
Missionary Workers may return home each weekend, if desired. The 
fees will be $10.00 a week including course fees, room and board for 
those who bring their sheets, pillow cases,, and towels. The charges 
will be $12.00 a week for those who do not bring their linen. Persons 
not living in the dormitories will pay $4.50 a week. A laboratory fee 
of $1.00 will be paid by each student for materials to be used in the 
Handicrafts course. About $5.00 will be needed for books and other 
supplies. For further information, write to Mrs. Ellen S. Alston, Post 
Office Box 1818, Raleigh, North Carolina.
